I've tried it. It doesn't look pretty, i.e. the player bumps into an Invisible Wall if they get too close, and you have to somehow handle the left-over hostile NPC's. If you use a single hostile NPC, as far as I understand you're limited to animal-types and if you skin them with a regular enemy costume you'd get a Zombie....

NPC Contacts are probably special because Cryptic doesn't want us to create missions where an NPC Contact may be a part of an objective but is set to disappear for whatever reason. We already have enough trouble with NPC Contacts getting killed by hostile enemies as it is.
